Had lunch at Houlihan's. Great burger. Terrific service by our server, Lulu. Had dinner as well. Excellent Tai chicken dish & service by Tonya. Breakfast the next morning was quite another story. Service VERY slow. Out of sausage links at 7:30. Server, Dick, apologetic but if had not had others meal here would definitely not come back. Omlet arrived with... More

After traveling nearly 500 miles in one day from Columbia, SC to Front Royal, VA on motorcycles we were looking for good food without leaving the hotel. Houlihan's came through with a great menu and assistance from the bartender in ordering our meals to take back to the room. The service was great and the food even greater!!!

Most of the time we really love the food here. It must depend on the chef on duty because there have been times that we had to send our food back to the kitchen.

My husband and I met some friends at Houlihan's recently. The location is easy to locate, right off of Interstate 66. It is attached to the Holiday Inn and very visible from the road. The dining room and bar is nice. The wait staff was very attentive. It was not crowded on a Saturday afternoon, so we were served quickly.... More

Had the chicken nachos and then the steak accompanied by a wedge salad. Dining partner had the bbq chicken flatbread pizza. Waitress and hostess were both incredibly nice and did a beautiful job. Very pleased. Good job by all! Enjoyed all around

Stopped in for dinner with another couple. My friends wife has a restrictive diet . They accommodated her request and even brought out a sample for her to try. This kind of service is rare. We were all pleased with the food. Server and chef made it a great experience.

We've been there several times. One of the perks are the organic items on the menu. Been there as a couple, group and friends. It is located in a Holiday Inn, Blue Ridge Shadows.

All their food is made from scratch and it is wonderful. I wish more restaurants would take this approach. Their service is outstanding. I wish we had a Houlihan's in our town.

Description
Forget 'casual dining.' That's an industry term so out of touch with how consumers eat and drink today. For premium quality and style; fare that's at times familiar and other times adventurous and a laid-back modern setting, Houlihan's is a true original.
